Don’t let the SAT stand between your child and the college of their dreams.

By the end of your child’s junior year, most of their college admissions criteria is already set. Their GPA is on a set course. Extracurricular activities are checked off the list. This leaves the SAT as one of the final opportunities to strengthen their college application. With the right preparation, your child can ace the SAT. Don’t settle for an average SAT score. Aim higher.

The right score can be the difference between getting their dream acceptance letter and settling for 2nd choice.

Get started 100% risk-free.

We promise your Revolution tutor will be the best private tutor you’ll ever work with, or you won’t pay a cent. We’re so confident in the quality of our full-time tutors, that if you decide to cancel for any reason within your first 30 days, it’s free.

How to prepare for the SAT

Set goals and develop a plan

First, make sure you know which version of the exam your child will take. Beginning in March 2016, the College Board will release a new version of the SAT. Then, set a baseline with a practice test. Taking a practice test is the best way to to determine how much preparation is needed to achieve your goal score. Not sure what score you should be aiming for? An Academic Advisor can help you set the right goals to make sure your child is on track for success. Call an advisor today or download a free SAT practice exam.

Reinforce critical academic skills

Preparing for the SAT is more than just practice tests and tricks and traps. A Professional Tutor will work to identify and address any knowledge gaps in academic skills while working on SAT practice. Understanding main ideas in a reading passage, working with triangles, and understanding subject-verb agreement are just a sample of the topics covered on the exam. Ensuring your child has a strong grasp of the fundamental concepts will not only increase their SAT score, but increase their grades and confidence in school. SAT scores can count for 25 to 35% of a college admissions decision, but GPA accounts for up to 50%.

Learn the SAT’s tricks and traps

The SAT, at nearly four hours, is the longest test most students have taken at this point in their life. Learning how to alleviate test anxiety and focus through the entire test is an important part of preparation. Students will also need to learn to identify common tricks and traps in SAT questions. Many questions on the SAT are asked in a less-than-straightforward way, which means that that students must learn to identify the core concept being assessed in a given question.

I’m not sure in which way it would be possible to show my appreciation for how successful SAT tutoring with you was. In my opinion, 5 stars doesn’t come to close to the amount of stuff I learned in just the short period of time I spent working with you. Thank you for everything.

Jonathan, Revolution SAT student
